PBCHS Project Graduation A Success

On Thursday, May 26, the parents of Palm Beach Central High School students hosted the annual all-night party Project Graduation at the Village Park gym.

Project Graduation is an all-night, drug-free and alcohol-free party organized by the parents of PBCHS. The committee worked hard all year long and raised more than $24,000 in cash for the event and collected an additional $16,000 in in-kind donations. A total of 308 seniors competed in a dodgeball tournament, played games, watched a hypnotist show and danced the night away one last time with their classmates.

More than 200 prizes were given away. Prizes included four $100 gift cards, SeaWorld admission tickets, Aquatica admission tickets, Miami Marlins tickets, TVs, Keurigs, Bikes, Magic Bullets, a Pandora bracelet, a Fitbit, an Xbox and more. Every senior who attended also received a $10 gift card and a package filled with various swag items and coupons.

The Project Graduation Committee thanks everyone who donated their time, money and goods to make this year’s event a success.
